‘The Battle Of Britain At 75’ tells the epic story of the greatest aerial conflict of the Second World War live from Biggin Hill in south-east London - the most iconic of Britain’s fighter stations.

Presenters Dermot O’Leary, Jeremy Vine and Sophie Raworth will be joined by the BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Air Force Squadronaires and guest singers, including Pixie Lott and the Puppini Sisters, as we share the compelling memories from the battle.

Rare archive footage from the conflict, modern day RAF personnel and a cast of actors, lead by Simon Callow reading the lines of Sir Winston Churchill, will bring those stories to life as we commemorate the 75th anniversary.

Exclusive cinema content includes a tour of a Spitfire, a flight in a Typhoon plus interviews with veterans.

This Battle of Britain concert will support RAF service charities with all profits donated to

The Royal Air Forces Association
The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund and
The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust
